Jan van den Brink Really love the sound of the melodica! Don't wanna be a 'copy cat', but sure gonna experiment with my melodica and frequency analyzer myself ;-) Favorite track: Whales Calling.


In preparation for the Rewire festival 2016, Oene and I did a small session to check out this sampling set:

We've put melodica and viola through a frequency stompbox and we were amazed by the sounds.

Koen Kaptijn and Keimpe de Jong later added their improvisations to this recording.

Also with sampled contributions by Nina Hitz (cello & prepared cello)
